ShankatsuForte: they have a 5 year plan.


What is it? Don't die?

I\m pretty sure the plan in that situation for most people is to put their heads between their legs and kiss their asses goodbye.

Well, at least Fuji's not located near any populous areas...

/after the tsunami last year, a professor of mine was talking with a Japanese colleague. She said the earthquake and tsunami was a tragedy, but at least it hit an area with a small population
//several million people live in the area; that's a small population in Japan, apparently

Eh, nature is just housekeeping and controlling the population.

/yea it's cruel

Came for that idiot Piyush, leaving satisfied.

I'm pretty sure the plan consists of yelling "IMPOSSIBRU!" right before being covered in boiling mud.

So I assume then that they already have a Godzilla/Rodan response plan?

Fun fact: Mt Fuji is basically the point where three major tectonic plates meet.

No, it's true: the tsunami came ashore far enough north that it missed Tokyo and its suburbs. The area affected is largely farmland, which is why the Japanese were so concerned about the effects of radiation from the power plant, as they rely on the area to feed Tokyo.

I don't think you call an expert an "expert" if he's Japanese. I believe the proper term is samurai, or master samurai.

I'm aware that the tsunami missed Tokyo; what I (and the professor) were remarking on was that she considers a few million people a small population/rural.

As long as Aokigahara is safe. I've still yet to visit there.

Not sure if you can really plan for a earthquake induced volcano induced tsunami.
 
2012-09-16 08:22:09 PM  
Truthfully I doubt the Japanese would have to worry about a tsunami created by a landslide from Fuji erupting, more or less it'd be us on the US west coast and mainland China that'd have to worry.

They've just set their alarm clocks for volcano day.
